Having been in Newport Beach on several occasions, this was unfortunately the only available hotel at our time of traveling (spur of the moment trip). The room was nice and the staff friendly, but parking was expensive and the location is not perfect. We had asked for an extra bed when making the reservation, but when arriving at the hotel,...

Very well appointed room with fridge, microwave, cable tv, double queen beds nice shower and tub.. Very quiet, clean, great breakfast (neat pancake machine). Not to far from beach and attractions. We walked to the pier and cafes from the hotel(about 1.5 miles-we are in our late 60"s). Front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. Computer available if you... More

The place is not clean. The room smells of cigarette even when it is a non smoking room. The front staff checked another person into the same room i was in. She walked in to the room, starling me. I can't imagine what would happen to my belongs if i were not present when this happen. Absolutely poor management.

My husband and I recently booked a block of rooms here for our wedding party and guests as our wedding was being held right across the street. We couldn't be happier with our decision.

It was a very short drive to the parking lot at Balboa Pier where we were instructed to overnight park. The rooms in this hotel are a little smaller than the average HIE, but... More

Visited this property with a group of moms and daughters age 14. The hotel is a convenient location near all the restaurants within walking distance. Hotel is clean and beds are comfy. The convenient and free breakfast in the morning was good too. Good place for groups.
